Kilonpuro sheltered housing unit

The Kilonpuro sheltered housing unit offers both intensified sheltered housing and independent living coaching. The unit is located in a normal apartment building and includes 19 apartments for permanent residents and 3 apartments for independent living coaching. Permanent housing is intended for Espoo residents with severe disabilities. The purpose of independent living coaching is to find a suitable housing service for each client depending on their functional capacity. The duration of coaching is determined based on each client's needs. The fee for independent living coaching is based on a daily or monthly fee. Clients are referred to the services based on a service needs assessment by the social work unit of Disability Services and an assessment by the SAS working group (selvitä, arvioi, sijoita = investigate, assess and place). The housing unit is intended for persons with severe disabilities whose functional capacity is limited in several areas of life. To ensure safety, all residents must be able to express their will, call for help if necessary and spend time alone in their own apartments. The service is not suitable for individuals who need constant supervision or constant medical care. The permanent residents of the housing unit conclude a tenancy agreement with Espoon Asunnot and are responsible for their own apartments, any related costs and personal expenses. The apartments are equipped with an automatic fire extinguishing system, and the residents have a personal alarm system that they can use to call for help around the clock if necessary. The unit includes a shared space for residents, a sauna, a storage space for assistive devices and lockable apartment-specific storage spaces. Residents can also use the laundry room in the building. Each resident is responsible for their own meal arrangements. In addition, an upkeep fee and home service meal fees may be charged from the residents. The residents participate in daily activities depending on their functional capacity.
